Bush Criticizes Republican Party in Interview

Source: New York Times

Former President George W. Bush, whose push for immigration reform and the invasion of Iraq spurred a backlash that helped lead to the rise of Donald J. Trump, is not happy with the current state of the Republican Party.

“I would describe it as isolationist, protectionist and, to a certain extent, nativist,” Mr. Bush said in an interview on NBC’s “Today” show that aired on Tuesday, promoting his new book of paintings and essays honoring immigrants in America.

“But I’m just an old guy they put out to pasture — a simple painter,” added the 43rd president, who said he published the book to “elevate” the discourse around immigration.

Over the weekend, Mr. Bush called on congressional Republicans to tone down their “harsh rhetoric about immigration” and urged them to enact comprehensive changes, including a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

5. spoken from true canceller - of Democracy, free speech (e.g. the Dixie Chicks)

Bush set all this in motion when he agreed to steel the election in 2000, then went on to lie and distort intelligence to support his personal vendetta against Saddam Hussein, and then crushed anyone who criticised him - e.g. the Dixie Chicks who were cancelled by the right-wing crybabies.

Bush lied and stole and showed the world not to trust us any more. He laughed at climate disaster. His people leaked information about intelligence contacts and revealed sources who did not agree with their lies.

the only good thing about bush is he's NOT trump

10. I imagine Cheney is loving what the GOP has been trying to do with Trump:

Cheney never respected our constitution.

12. Bush started the GOP demise

With John Woo, Rumsfeld and Cheney on board, we all knew what was coming in Nov 2000.
we didn't have to wait long for the next Sept to arrive.

911 may finally be put into history with Afghanistan' troop withdrawal.

Now's let focus on the health effects for all those who ran into danger to help in NYC on 09/11/2001.

Protect the protectors and hold accountable the perpitrators.
